One handy feature of the new Microsoft Edge is the ability to start Collections. A collection is kind of a virtual notebook that allows you to add snippets of text or images. It differs from a bookmark in that you aren’t limited to adding just a whole page. You can add snippets or images and make notes.

Start by opening Microsoft Edge.  You’ll find the Collections icon at the top right of the page.
